If you have a dull, cracked, or misaligned tooth, or any other imperfection in your smile, you may understand how uncomfortable smiling can be. It isn’t surprising then that Americans spend billions of dollars every year to enhance the appearance of their teeth. Still, do you ever wonder which cosmetic treatment could be better for you? If you have, we recommend considering dental veneers.

Veneers are thin shells designed to cover the front of your teeth–meaning they’ll cover your flaws and even help your teeth function better. When you visit our office for veneers, our Santa Ana dentist, Dr. Dr. Thomas Alexander & Eric Ch, will make sure these shells match the color, shape, and size of your teeth.

Fortunately, after you’ve had veneers, you can expect to enjoy them for years to come–without much more effort than it takes to clean your teeth. Still, there are some things you can do to extend the life of your veneers. In fact, if you care for your teeth properly, your veneers could last for twenty years. One thing you need to do is brush gently. If you brush too hard, you could unintentionally damage your veneers. Similarly, there are certain drinks you should avoid, including soda and alcohol. Finally, please don’t chew on ice, pencils, or other inedible objects.
